As many as 42 million people from around the globe had their information stolen from an online dating network, including names, email addresses, unencrypted passwords, and dates of birth, according to a report published by security researcher Brian Krebs.
The Australian-based Cupid Media, which owns more than 30 niche dating sites such as Asian and and Brazilian Cupid.com, has disputed that number, but admitted to Krebs that a breach did occur in January 2013. Because 42 million is one of the largest breaches to happen this year, made worse by the fact that the exposed passwords were stored as plain text.
Despite the size of the Adobe breach, the Cupid Media hack is probably worse, claimed Wisniewski.
"The unencrypted nature of the sensitive information would arguably make this the worst breach of 2013," Wisniewski wrote.
Another reason to worry: More than 1.9 million of the hacked accounts used the classic password 123456, while another 1.2 million used 111111.
